Which is true, if the reader is willing to ignore the occasional jarring notes that leave a trail of bloody, dismembered, tranmpled by elephants, crushed by falling roofs, etc.

It’s the novel of someone in their twenties facing the looming prospect of adult life. After watching the new movie last week, I had to reread the book.
